Boston Vlog Part 2: Chinatown, visiting Fenway Park & Boston in the fall

What a way to spend my last international trip of 2022. Flying business class with United Airlines from London Heathrow to Boston, Massachusetts, for a weekend of exploring the larges, most walkable city in the USA. [ad press trip] This trip was a press trip with United Airlines, Travel Up and the Boston Tourism Board. There was so much to cram in that I've split it across two vlogs – here's Part 1 - enjoy!From those beautiful fall colours at Boston Common and visiting Fenway Park – home of the Red Sox, to tasting the famous lobster rolls and fresh oysters the city is known for. We explored art, culture, heritage and history as we walked the streets of Boston, USA, and even took to the water for a "Duck Tour" around the harbour. If you've ever wanted to visit Boston – I've found the best things to do in Boston and have written a guide to the best 22, including tips on how to travel there and where to stay.Check out my blog post for a full itinerary and where we stayed: https://absolutelylucy.com/22-best-things-to-do-in-boston-usa/Don't forget to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE if you want to see more videos from me :-)For those who are new to this channel, I'm Lucy, a solo female travel blogger from the UK, who loved adventure travel, music festivals and vanlife.

✨ When the festival makes it out of the group chat ✨Looking for a weird and wonderful festival experience? Mad Max fans - did you know you can go to a music festival in a real-life Gastown? 😮I’ve just spent the last 5 days exploring North Morovia in the Czech Republic which is home to @colours_cz - Colours of Ostrava is held in this incredible industrial setting in the Czech Republic against a backdrop of former blast furnaces, mines and ironworks in Dolní Vítkovice.This eclectic, multi-genre international music festival features acts including @lennykravitz @samsmith @duttypaul @jamesblake @infectedmushroom @zaralarsson and many more, plus there’s DJs long into the night.The award-winning festival is full of art, creative expression and just a little bit weird – if you’re looking for a unique festival experience, this is it. It’s unlike any festival I’ve attended before. Pack your comfy shoes, I clocked up over 100,000 steps from a few days of dancing.Next year’s headliner has just been announced as @thechainsmokers 🎉Would you go to a music festival abroad? Would you dare go alone?? 🪩#coloursofostrava #visitczechrepublic #visitczech #festival2024 #festivalmood #festivalready #festivalclothing #festivalgirls #instafestival #festivalglitter #madmax #furiosa #gastown #czech_insta #dolnivitkovice #dolnimorava #czechroamers #czechtourism #czechtraveler #czechfestival #musicfestivaloutfit #musicfestivalseason #festivalseason #boomtownfair #boomtown #secretgardenparty #glasto #glastonburyfestival #glitterqueens #northmoraviaA d  p r invite

Did you know the average person lives just 4,000 weeks? The average person in the UK will spend over 3,500 days of their life at work and so many of us don’t even take our full annual leave.One of my last jobs was in a place with unlimited leave - and amazing perks - but even then some people had to be told to take even the minimum allowed in the UK 😮Life is so short and so precious, and while we can’t live our lives on holiday, it is so important not to spend our lives waiting to get to “the good bit”.When 🦠 hit, I knew so many people who had longed to travel for years, and were due to leave within weeks of lockdown. By the time two years had passed, they were settled again and had jobs/homes and couldn’t take the chance again.You don’t have to sacrifice all stability in your life to travel, it’s perfectly possible to fit it around your annual leave and have some amazing experiences without always waiting for retirement.Here’s 5 ways you can travel while in full time work WITHOUT quitting your job!
🔸 USE your annual leave and max it out, you can often buy more days if you want & by taking them over public holidays you can actually end up with much longer breaks!
🔹 Find a job that involves travel! There are so many paid travel opportunities >> @packslight has a great newsletter with reccs and advice on how to find them!
🔸 Take a sabbatical - a lot of companies offer these and they could be 6 months, a year or more! If you’re looking to travel long-term but don’t want to quit - this is a great option!
🔹 Become a digital nomad and work remotely - there are so many amazing opportunities to work online these days and entire companies that work remotely!
🔸 Transfer to a role abroad - lots of big companies will have departments in other countries - find out what roles are available and see if it’s in a location where you might want to stay or live and travel from thereHow do you bring travel into your life?#annualleave #holiday #solotravelingisfun #solotravellingwoman #solotravelgirl #digitalnomadlifestyle #digitalnomadgirls #digitalnomadspirit #digitalnomadwomen #sabbaticallife #sabbatical #pto #traveljobs #traveljob #adventurewomen
